“We are confident that the Show will be made even more entertaining for participants and audiences with the addition of the talented acts with which UrFilez. We thank UrFilez for their support of the Show and, importantly, for their ongoing efforts to promote talent across the Kingdom.”
Hassan Miah, founder and chief executive officer of UrFilez, said: “We are pleased to take part and lend our support to this exciting initiative. UrFilez was created in order to give artists a platform through which to promote their music and bring their talent to the public.”
“We believe the Tamkeen Business Quiz Show does just that both in terms of the opportunity for us to showcase and promote Bahraini musical talent but also the talent and knowledge that exists among Bahrainis across the many sectors that make the Kingdom an important business hub and the gateway to the GCC markets.”

The Tamkeen Business Quiz Show will be held at the Cultural Hall, which seats over 700 people and is located just adjacent to the Bahrain Museum.
The Show will commence on August 3, with the Investment & Insurance Quiz Night, and be followed by the Technology & Telecoms Quiz night on August 8, the Industrials Quiz Night on August 9 and the Banking Quiz Night on August 16.
The Quiz will conclude in the last week of Ramadan (date to be confirmed) with the four winning teams, representing their respective industries, taking part in a final Grand Quiz competition. The winning team will receive BD1000 in cash and other prizes. – TradeArabia News Service
